Commercial Description

Because of abundance of silver tips or buds, the cup seems to be a bit light this time than the previous Arya Rubys we tasted before. The cup is smooth and bright. The aroma of the cup is slightly minty, herbal like, sweet like honey, fruity and flowery. It has a hint of fruity and flowery taste with complex layers of sweetness, honey like, buttery, malty and nutty (reminiscent of almonds).

this seems like a well-balanced 2nd flush darjeeling. i imagine that this is basically what an archetypical 2nd flush tea should be. some muskiness, nuttiness, bitterness, and astringency. no single element is really overwhelming.
good tea
